July 7, 2003, Los Angeles, CA.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court entered an Order today which extended the Gurukuli claims deadline in the ISKCON Chapter 11 cases to August 15, 2003. All Gurukulis now have additional time to file a claim for compensation. Claim forms must be RECEIVED (not just mailed) by both the California court and West Virginia court on or before August 15, 2003.Claims received after August 15, 2003, will be disallowed.

For FedEx delivery of the claim forms, use "Clerk of the Court" as the name of the recipient. FedEx also requires a telephone number. For the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in California use (818) 587-2900. For the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in West Virginia use (304) 233-1655. Note that there is a minor correction to the preprinted address on the West Virginia claims form. The street name is spelled Chapline (with an "e"), NOT Chaplin. While this minor printing error should not create a problem for mail delivery, it could cause a delay for FedEx delivery.

To protect claimants' privacy, claim forms are automatically filed by the Clerk of the Court "under seal." This means that all of the information provided will be held in the strictest confidence and will not be available to the public.
